Jayme Stone’s Folklife follows the bends and bayous through the deep river of song and story. Evolving out of Stone’s Lomax Project, this gathering of versatile musicians blows the dust off of old songs and remakes them for modern ears. With spellbinding singing, virtuosic playing and captivating storytelling, the album reworks songs found in the Library of Congress’ Archive of American Folklife.
The recording features singer extraordinaire Moira Smiley (tune-yArDs), Grammy-winning songster Dom Flemons (Carolina Chocolate Drops), cornetist Ron Miles (Bill Frisell), singer Felicity Williams (Bahamas) and more. A powerful chemistry and camaraderie amongst the musicians can be felt throughout the record.
